    Hello Rob,

    What were you wanting to use "Run as administrator" on?

    As Brink says, clarificaton will be useful.

    If you are saying that it is the running as admin stage that does not work then please explain what does & does not happen.

    Just for the purposes of testing the Admin permissions side of things, right-click on your Windows Start button & select Windows PowerShell [Admin] or Command prompt [Admin] - whichever appears in your circumstances will do just fine
    - an Admin challenge should appear and, depending on your user account status, you will either have to click a Yes button or enter a password and then click the Yes button.
    It should either look like this

    or like this

    but if it looks like this final diagram there is a fault that needs to be fixed

    If you get through this stage alright then it will be the nature of the command you are trying to follow in your "another active post" that needs to be examined.

    Incidentally, I cannot see any open threads started by you this year so I assume that your "another active post" must be a post within somebody else's thread.

    Unable to Run as Administrator


    Denis. Thanks for your reply. The previous post was last year. I had a fairly new HP laptop which suddenly would not boot. I came to the Ten Forum site and the responder was Guru Navy LCDR. He was giving me things to try. Due to some health problems, I dropped out for a while. I was finally able to get an older Toshiba laptop with Windows 10 running which moved the urgency down a few notches. I just recently got back to the HP problem and contacted the guru. He sent me a procedure to try. The first step was to create a command list. The first item was 'cmd and Run as Administrator', which I could not achieve.. I tried it on the Toshiba and it worked. Via Google, I received several things to try, but none worked.

    On your thread today, using the old Toshiba, I did the right click on start and selected the Windows PowerShell (Admin), the screens you showed came up. When I tried it on the desktop, there was no visible response. As you can tell, any help you can provide will be appreciated. Thanks again

    Dick,

    When I tried it on the desktop, there was no visible response
    Please could you say exactly what you did on the Desktop.

    Unable to Run as Administrator


    Yes Denis, that is the post being worked on. I was told that at times some of these special tools can be used to log onto the bad computer and get the system to boot up. That is my goal.

    In that case, I'm going to merge this thread with the original one to keep it all together.
